  • Our buddies @fernworks and @killaspro, bringing their weirdo finest to Halloween!
  • The view off the kitchen, out onto our patio, of the fire ring and the canary yellow-hued leaves of the ginkgo beyond. We wait for that tree to turn color and gently drop its leaves all year. A sudden, early frost last October caused all of the leaves to drop overnight, while still green. This year, we got the golden ticket. Proof positive that some things truly are worth the wait. Happy All Souls Eve!

  • For today's #tbt, I'm sharing an image of the altar @shelterprotectsyou and @sheltercollective built on our property for their wedding here last month. Such a beautiful, memorable day that was, filling our little forested cove with happy juju for weeks. Love watching the scene shift as the foliage changes.
  • Felt a shift in the air today, this afternoon in particular. The veil is getting thin. You feeling it, too?
  • SO much love for @forvillagers and her heavenly homesteading/hearth-tending supply store in West Asheville. Stopped in today for a bag of organic chicken feed and to see what's new in the shop. I'll be teaching a

Eco Winter Reads


Happy Friday, everyone! My “Small Measures with Ashley” post is up over at Design Sponge. This week I’m weighing in with a list of titles for suggested ecologically-minded winter reads. Many of them I’ve read, while others are on my list. All of them are chock full of fantastically inspiring information and ideas. And all of them will help temper (hopefully) winter angst and cabin fever!


May your weekend be grand, wherever it takes you. It’s supposed to be over 50 degrees F here tomorrow, which, compared to the temperatures we’ve been shivering through, will feel like an absolute heat wave. I’ve no doubt there will be folks out in town in shorts. People really like to milk the warmer winter days around here…

Be well, ya’ll!
